A clinical massage involves a full assessment of your soft tissue needs. This assessment will help develop a focused treatment plan, the aim being to deliver a series of massage treatments that encourage an increase in range of movement and a decrease in your experience of pain.

Pregnancy and Post Natal Massage
Massage during and after pregnancy can be both therapeutic and relaxing. It benefits are bountiful. It can help alleviate pain or tension in various parts of the body, such as the lower back, shoulders or legs. It can also help to reduce oedema and blood pressure. Treatment takes place whilst you are in a comfortable and supported side-lying position and calls for a range of techniques to help reduce discomfort, pain and feelings of stress. The overall experience also provides a window of time where you can reconnect with yourself and your body. This is especially important when you consider the changes and challenges that pregnancy and birth often bring.
We live in a busy and often stressful world. A relaxation massage can help by pulling on a range of techniques that aim to reduce your stress levels whilst improving your overall sense of wellbeing.
